Bull Inn, Reading
What a terrific place to stay
What an amazing place. Great staff, good food and really comfortable bed.

Bull Inn, Reading
Beautiful place but small , hot and noisy.
Very picturesque location and accommodation. My room was Jerome - beautifully done but space was limited, needing to be a hobbit to get into the bathroom. Very little room to work / sit in the room. Stayed in early October. The rooms were boiling hot - must be an issue as provided a Dyson fan .. but to be honest didn’t expect to need one of those in October. Realise an old building but even tho I requested a quiet room given one above the bar, overlooking outside smoking area - lots of local clientele - noisy until 11.45pm so unable to open a window. Parking was limited and traffic awful into the village/ finding the pub. Overall , lovely staff , all very knowing when I mentioned noise and heat - so must be constant comment Will be going to back to The Great House at Sonning next time

First stay... definitely won't be the last!
Lovely room, really modern but also very comfortable. Nice bathroom size and top tip customer service, particularly when we arrived late and had to leave before breakfast. Nice and quiet - a good nights sleep pretty much guaranteed. Look forward to going back!

Beautiful stay in a pub.
It’s great. It’s an old pub with all the charm. Recent renovation is gorgeous. Staff are lovely. Breakfast is delicious.
